      From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996.

      Lois was the youngest of the nine children born to William Walter Ewell and Elvira Lillian Bigelow. One of her happiest memoris was running to get the first kiss from her father when he came home from work, and to eat what was left in his lunch bucket. She enjoyed singing and taking part in plays. She first met her husband when she went to her friend's house, not realizing a party was going on, singing a real high note as she pressed the doorbell. James Lavar Washburn asked her out on a date that first night. Since she was only a freshman in highschool, they went together for four years before getting married.

      They had numerous children, in 1957 the family moved to Canada, where LaVar was a superintendent of the Utah Company of America. While living there, the family was asked to be the American Family to greet Queen Elizabeth when she arrived on her tour. Unfortunately, the Queen became ill so they didn't make the trip.
